Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by compression of the median nerve resulting in chronic wrist pain. Symptoms include a dull ache, numbness or pins and needles in the wrist and forearm, which may radiate into the hand and fingers, and is often worse at night. Treatment includes rest, bracing and in some cases surgery.
